Product Description

BLACK SHEEP - Blu-Ray Movie

Amazon.ca

Chris Farley plays the disaster-prone brother of a gubernatorial candidate in Washington State. Though he is well meaning, the havoc he creates on the campaign trail is drawing press attention, so a snotty aide (David Spade) to the politician is dispatched to keep the big lug under control. Spade's character initially insults his charge as often as possible, but over time, the two bond and end up becoming a part of the final election push. Farley and Spade have some very funny moments, but overall the film feels rushed and poorly planned. Constant changes in character and script happen recklessly and randomly so that nothing ever really makes sense; the film keeps changing the rules by which it plays. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Black Sheep(released Feb/96)was the second vehicle that starred SNL alumni Chris Farley and David Spade,the first having been Tommy Boy.Both were successes at the box office,but this film is straining for laughs at most times.SNL creator Lorne Michaels was at the helm but the I-can-see-this-joke-coming-a-mile-away thing is just beaten to death here.Farley's familiar gesticulations coupled with his screaming at the top of his voice "Oh my God" or "Stawwp!" with a red face,may have worked well in other venues but they fall flat here.Spade here is comedically neutered;his sharp "counter-punches" have been turned into wrist slaps.I recall that the filming of this was less than a pleasant experience for all involved,especially the writer,director,producer and Spade.It's a wonder it got made at all,with the off screen acrimony to have seemingly contributed to the lacklustre end product.
The story is a simple one.A candidate for Governor of Washington one Al Donnelly(Tim Matheson,who starred in a spate of frat house films in the /80s),as a younger brother Mike played by Chris Farley who is kind of the "black sheep" of the family;a good hearted guy but kind of a bull in a china shop and stumble bum.A man on Al's campaign staff Steve Dodds(Spade)offers to keep an eye on Al's brother until the campaign is over.
While driving into town Steve gets his car taken by a local recluse named Drake Sabbitch(played with great elan by Gary Busey),after he insults him.In no time it seems Steve has got his hands full with Mike as one faux paux follows quickly after yet another.

With the big success of Tommy Boy, people thought they needed another quick hit with both Farley and Spade. Instead, casting Farley and Spade in this bomb does nothing but give the audience hopes, even PLEAS for the slightest bit of comic relief. The film has a couple laughable moments, but some may be laughing more at how rushed and undeveloped the film is than at some corny joke about "chocolate pudding in my underpants." I don't know why this movie is so rushed, by the way; it ends up with a running length of only 86 minutes. And if you ask me, it's the rushing of the film that is its biggest demise. Characters constantly go out of character for no reason, there aren't very many pleasing jokes, and nothing ever does a very good job of getting developed. For example, I got the impression that the film's basic plot was to send Farley and Spade's characters up in a cabin so that Farley's character wouldn't ruin the election for his brother. However, I don't think the two even spend a half hour in the retreat. Also, Farley is much funnier when his character isn't trying to be a nice-guy, role-model type. Actually, that brings up another flaw, Farley hardly ever plays the same character, he goes from charismatic role model for kids to extreme klutz & idiot to rockin' pothead. I love Chris Farley and was very sad to see him go, but for some of his better moments, get Tommy Boy, or maybe even Beverly Hills Ninja. Better choice yet-- buy SNL's "Best Of Chris Farley." It's hilarious, nostalgic, and much more fun to watch than this.

To put it simply, Black Sheep is on my list of Top 100 Funniest Movies Ever. The chemistry between Chris Farley (RIP) and David Spade is unbelievable (not to mention side-splitting). Their performance in this movie is great, and fans will enjoy such timeless moments as "Kill Whitey!", short-circuited headbanging, the nitrous oxide, David Spade being "extinguished," and Chris Farley wearing bunny ears. If you like comedy, this is not a movie you want to miss. Another noteworthy part of this movie is the role of Gary Busey (Predator 2) as a fanatic war veteran with a prosthetic leg who lives in a school bus surrounded by land mines.
As you can see, I love this movie, and give it 5 stars. However, as a DVD I give it only 4. I paid [$$] for it, and what do I get? The movie. And only the movie. There are no special features whatsoever, which is what makes this such a miserable DVD. The persons who compiled this should have taken the time to at least get an interview with David Spade and Gary Busey and put the original theatrical trailer on the DVD. This "compilation" pales in comparison to the modern standards of DVDs. In my opinion though, the movie is so great that it alone nearly justifies the [&&], even though you can buy it on VHS - minus surround sound and French audio - for a fraction of that price.

After Chris Farley (R.I.P) and David Spade's first comedy hit, they made another one together called "Black Sheep". Personally I think this movie is as good as Tommy Boy. Farley and Spade have done it again.
The setting starts out in Washington state. Mike Donelly (Farley) is the goofy, lame-brain brother of Al Donelly (Tim Matheson) who is running for governor. Mike can't stop getting into trouble and it makes his brother look bad as he tries to win the election. So, Al comes across Steve Dodds (Spade) and hires him to watch his brother and keep him out of trouble.
As the two set out to promote Al's canadicy for governor, they get set-up for an arsenal fire by Al's opponent, the current Governor Tracy. So the two are sent out to the woods in the mountains of Washington to hide out. The cabin they stay in is falling apart. The roof flies off during a wind and hail storm and a boulder hits the house.
Will Al win the election? Can Mike stay out of trouble? Find out what happens next. This movie is a top choice for any Farley movie lover.
